Saturday

A rustic, yet delectible cookie!

Eid is just around the corner and I know people are starting to think about what they are going to make. Eid is a day to celebrate with family, exchange gifts and eat lots of great treats. Also, in between the house hopping, is the oh so important Eid nap where your tummy prepares itself for the next round of eating.

When I was growing up, my mom and grandmother would always make a traditional Sindhi sweet dish called keer karkoon. It comprises of full fat milk flavoured with cardamom pods and sugar, slowly cooked over the stove for a few hours. When the milk turns a pinky colour, the rehydrated dried dates are added to it and cooked together. Unfortunately I have not had any experience of making this dish- mom, it's time for a cooking lesson!

Since there will be no keer karkoon cooking in my kitchen for Eid, I have decided to bake some cookies instead. To read more, head on over to Hinna's Kitchen Adventures!
